Tropp The Hatter


Recommended Posts

I found this one at local antique mall. Turns out the people that started the shop were originally from Galicia / Austria / Poland. What I could find is listed below.


Gray, size 7 1/4, Cav edge but not sure of the source.















The original owner / hatter was a man named Morris Tropp (originally from Galicia / Austria / Poland) who was originally at another address and pops up at the one on the hat in the 1920 census (listed as Hatter). He is no longer around as of the 1930 census but his wife is listed as running the shop. It must have kept going because my hat appears to be from the 1950s. The area is really run down today so probably didn't survive the 1960s.


Original location from the 1891 Philadelphia City directory. His brother? Wolf is also listed. I found Wolf had a hat shop at 77 Livingston St. Newark, NJ (1891 Newark City Directory).
